Description

openindiana hipster current release (downloaded Mar 2018); supermicro x8dah motherboard; 3ware 9690sa pcie raid card not detected. This page ( https://wiki.openindiana.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4883876 ) suggests the card is supported.

The drivers at ( https://www.broadcom.com/support/knowledgebase/1211161499498/operating-systems-supported-for-the-lsi-3ware-and-megaraid-contr ; ftp://tsupport:tsupport@ftp0.broadcom.com/private/3Ware/downloads/opensolaris_3ware_drivers_tools_docs.zip ) seem to work (as in I can see drives); but, actually working reliably over time seems iffy to me.

So, I'm wondering what the best course of action is. Any help / recommendation is MUCH appreciated.

Jim, illumos HCL (http://illumos.org/hcl/) is the authoritative source of supported devices. I don't see the RAID card there, so I am afraid the Broadcom `tw` driver is your best chance.

Perhaps Ken who maintains the wiki entry can share some knowledge.
